Windows "Three days into Computex Taipei, Asia's biggest computer show, not a single manufacturer has announced a Windows RT device. Windows RT, the version of Windows 8 designed for more power-efficient ARM processors, made its official debut at last year's show on a convertible tablet by Asus." Not surprising. Windows 8's Metro is pretty terrible in and of itself, and on Windows RT specifically, it's even worse. My Surface RT is very promising, but Windows RT 8.1 better fix the loads of performance issues cripling the operating system.

CapEnt is on it.
Looking at Microsoft products always blurs my vision and my eyes glaze over. Always inconsistent in direction and naming, I think the populous has become more accustomed to competing brands with clearer direction and a steady product whereas new MS products come out of the port taking water, with disillusioned captain and no sailors. I would only own one if I won it as a door prize.

I wouldn't even then; I'd ask for the money instead or sell it at first opportunity.

Eh, I'd keep it. I have a soft spot for now-dead historical hardware and software. It could rest on top of the alpha workstation.

(Sadly, I don't have an HP TouchPad - though I have played with one.)

Sell it to whom? Doesn't seem like anyone wants them.
